Re: Weds 14 March 2018, SQVP or a mature LBV

Will check with SWMBO = HI.

I note that the LBV must be ‘≤1989’ mature, but that there is no such requirement on the SQVP.

Is Noval SQVP? NN? V89? GM?

Could we swap the S82 and Ch82 so the two Sandeman wines are next to each other?
Placemats: preferred to swap the two ’80s: if you object, will do your plan.

Ten glasses can squeeze onto US Legal. Alex: will you be able to print onto 14″×8½″?

Re: Thursday 18th January 2018?

Alex: how spacious is Bar Douro? Will we have room for 2×A4? Currently I have squeezed seven bottles onto a single A4, but when Derek reveals his ’82 that will become eight, for which a single A4 is insufficient. How tight are things?

Somebody is getting stronger. Good. Somebody will have to atone for these calories with a few weeks of kale. Not so good.

If you were to attend, what would you want to have been written on the additional placemat circle?

Or single decanted, into a proper decanter.

and have walked 10km in each of the last 14 days. That’s excellent. The other knee will hopefully be done within the next four weeks and by spring I could be ready to enter Strictly Come Dancing. Labour MPs only. Bring a bottle to share with Derek's new knees would be the theme 😎 Works for me. Alas...

Warre, Croft or Smith Woodhouse vertical.
Works for me.

Might have W47 — need to check. Croft very little. And a SW77 magnum.

The “indefinitely” is a good choice of word: not forever, but there is no definite year by when it should be drunk.

it's a very poor show that no-one has posted any tasting notes - however brief. The reprimand is fair, and I have made a small atonement ( Ck , D , G , W , N , S , O , F , T ).

T70, decanted 06:45. Glorious red, 50% opaque. Palate started dry and became much drier, and of only mid weight. This bottle would have been better a decade before.
